It's amazing the difference in the sound quality you get with a decent pair of earbuds. These are a must for working for me anyway. I stick them in my ears and go to it. The music helps me focus on what I'm doing and helps to tune other noises around me out. And also, it's suppose to discourage my co-workers from trying to chit chat with me. When I have the earbuds in most of the time they keep on walking by my office.

Almost 15 years

I love him. I love him more today, after 17 years together and nearly 15 years married to each other and three children and a host of ups and downs, I love him more. I love him for the father that he is, for the friend that he is, for the lover that he is. I love him for the way he thinks of us, his family, first. I love him for how he provides for us. I love him for the way he does small things for me like make coffee each morning so it's there when I come downstairs. I love him for making me laugh when I feel like crying and for having the wicked sense of humor that he has. I love him for his thick, wavy hair with just a touch of gray in it. I love him for growing a beard just for me. I love him for reaching across the bed in the middle of the night to touch my back or shoulder. I love him for always being there, no matter what. I love him for staying beside me when I've been at my worst and I love him for still loving me even though he's seen me at my worst. And believe me, it's pretty bad! I love him for making huge, difficult changes because he loves us that much. I love him for the great sex but mostly I love him because he's my best friend.
